Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced crime victim lawyer who helps bar shooting victims and their families find justice through civil lawsuits. Here are some thoughts from Marc on the legal rights of these victims and families:

Every bar owner has a legal obligation to make sure their properties are safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. But sadly, violent crimes often occur at bars and nightclubs. when someone's injured or killed in a bar shooting, it's important to ask if the bar owner met this legal obligation to safety.

Some bar shootings may have been prevented if not for inadequate security or another form of negligence by the bar owner. For example, a bar owner could possibly be considered negligent for a shooting if the bar had past incidents of violence, but no safety improvements were made.
